Victoria Gran Fondo tomorrow as well! Sat June 21st.

A few of us from the club, Scott, Nelson, Markus, and I, are doing the Victoria Gran Fondo tomorrow. I have wanted to do this event since 2009 when it was first offered. The logging road from Port Renfrew to Lake Cowichan was paved the year before and of course, some cyclist like ourselves thought... 'Hey.. that would be a crazy awesome loop!.

Here is a link to the course route. It is 270km, but on there is says 263km due to some route discrepancies.

The official end to the race portion is at the top of the Shawnigan Lake climb about 225km into it, then it is neutralized down the Malahat and into town. Last year Fast-Legs Frank crushed it for an 8th spot in 7 hours 34 min, just 2 min behind the winner. Then made it to the final finish in just more than 9 hours.

The race director emailed out that the support vehicles and motorbikes will have SPOT satellite devices on them and that friends can watch the progress of the groups throughout the day. No promises, it may not work, but here is the link that should come live tomorrow at 6am Victoria.
